Back-Up Cameras Unable to Stop Drivers from Collisions

The Washington Post reports that according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the presence of back-up cameras in cars has not “significantly cut down on cars backing into people and causing them harm.” President and founder of car safety nonprofit Janette Fennell said drivers “get distracted by any number of things as their cars roll backward.” Between 2008 and 2011, injuries dropped eight percent, and fatalities dropped by 31 percent. Vice president of research at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Jessica Cicchino said, “We know that rear cameras can help, but they’re not a silver bullet.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
